Pastor whose pregnant wife was murdered in their home remarries 2 years later.

A pastor whose pregnant wife was killed in November 2015 during a home invasion robbery has remarried.

Pastor Davey Blackburn, of Indianapolis, announced his new marriage on Facebook on Monday. He made the announcement with a simple bible verse and a picture from his wedding day.

He wrote: “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah? ?43:19?.”

In November, Blackburn announced his engagement on the two-year anniversary of the day his wife was killed and this didn’t go down well with some people who felt he could have chosen a more appropriate time.

Blackburn’s late wife, Amanda, (pictured above) was shot in the head during an attempted burglary when three men entered the family’s home through a door Blackburn left open when he left for work.

Amanda, who was 12 weeks pregnant, was home alone with the couple’s then 15-month-old son, Weston at the time. Waston was not harmed. Later, Jalen Watson, 21, Larry Taylor, 18 and Diano Gordon, 24, were arrested and charged with Amanda Blackburn’s murder.

Blackburn’s engagement to Kristi Monroy was announced on his blog. He said he first spotted Monroy at this church. In the blog post entitled, “I just popped the question… & she said yes!” Blackburn documents his story of grief after Amanda’s death, to meeting his now-wife.

He wrote: “I realize for many people this may seem a bit soon and trust me, it did to me as well.”

In August, Blackburn and his new woman Monroy spent a week with his family and a week with his late wife Amanda’s family. Blackburn popped the question to Monroy on Nov. 8.

Blackburn said his late wife’s dad had given him advice about his relationship.

“Davey, take it slow until you know she’s the right one. Once you know, go fast, and we’ll be right there with you.”

People are now suspecting he may have had a hand in his wife’s murder…

The High Court in Mukono District in central Uganda found her guilty of murdering her husband Eric Kiddu after hitting him several times on the head with an iron bar.

After the murder Nakku attempted to make the killing appear to be the result of an attack by unknown people by screaming and running to neighbours to ask for help. His body was later found in a pool of blood with a panga and brick besides it, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had quarrelled shortly before the bloody encounter with a misunderstanding leading to Kiddu’s death.

Nakku was advised by the judge to appeal the sentence if she was dissatisfied as relatives of both husband and wife argued outside the court, trading accusations.
